I'm afraid you won't be getting anything better for free. I can understand that even 8 K is rather small sometimes, but honestly I would do any further closeups with partial renders and then put everything together in compositing. On the other side... You could always work on becoming a millionaire and then buy a fully vectorized data set like they use in news production.
